A suspension of the MacPherson strut type is one of the most frequently used suspension systems in passenger cars. A compact structure is an advantage of this type of suspension. A change to the steering angle and camber as a result of shock absorption is a disadvantage. These changes have an impact on driving safety. This article presents a new solution of the vehicle suspension including its analysis. This suspension possesses the advantages of the MacPherson strut which is a compact and simple structure. In the suspension proposed, the steering angle change being the result of shock absorption has been totally eliminated.
